After making with the future-defining decision to withdraw the U.S. from the costly Paris Climate treaty, President Trump has received a lot of criticism for doing so, with the majority of liberal failing to see the big picture of all the ways that the deal is draining our nation of money and destroying our economy. But where they failed to see the big picture, the Job Creators Network, which is founded by Home Depot co-founder and former CEO Bernie Marcus, hasn’t. The network is praising President Donald Trump for setting his foot down and doing what he promised in his campaign.
President Trump was applauded by the Georgia-based organization for the “positive impact the move will have on small businesses, jobs and wages.”
The Paris treaty required the United States to reduce the emissions by 26-28% below 2005 levels by 2025. This would cause all the small businesses to use more expensive forms of energy, thus alleviating the costs of the businesses and significantly impair their ability to expand, increase wages and create jobs.
A clear example of this is Europe, where the energy is regulated and electricity costs are triple that of the U.S. According to statistics, the regulations associated with the Paris Climate Treaty would add $83,000 regulatory burden facing the average small business, which is quite a lot.
One way or another, President Trump has shown that he is a man of his word, as this was one of his bigger campaign promises.
“In order to fulfill my solemn duty to protect America and its citizens, the United States will withdraw from the Paris Climate Accord,” declared Trump in a speech in the White House Rose Garden, adding, “We will see if we can make a deal that’s fair. And if we can, that’s great. And if we can’t, that’s fine.”
ccording to Job Creators founder, Bernie Marcus, the decision was a major “win for the 85 million Americans whose livelihoods depend on small businesses.”
Marcus also added that “By avoiding the self-inflicted wound associated with kneecapping this country’s energy industry, the president has kept electricity costs reasonable for all businesses.”
Marcus finished by saying that the U.S.’s exit of this treaty should be considered a victory for all Americans who will avoid having their limited disposable income diverted to pay for the global elite’s priorities. The exit of the deal liberates the U.S. from an unfair deal which would build their own coal plants at our nation’s expense, so by leaving the deal, President Trump has put America and its people on the first place.
